Death of Professor John Mulvaney, father of Australian archaeology

Emeritus Professor John Mulvaney died yesterday in Canberra, aged 90. He was known as ‘the father of Australian archaelogy’, particularly because of his pioneering work on Indigenous Australia. An ABC News item on John Mulvaney and a collection of tweets paying tribute to him and his work. Two of his best-known works are Prehistory of Australia with Johan Kamminga and the edited volume (with Peter White) Australians to 1788. A list of some other Mulvaney publications. His brief Wikipedia entry.

Honest History sends its condolences to John Mulvaney’s family and friends.
